HOUSTON – A research team at Rice University in Texas, USA, claim their carbon nanotube fibres are now stronger than Kevlar fibres and could one day be more conductive than copper.

The material, which has continued to demonstrate enhanced properties over two decades now, has been tipped for use by the automotive, aerospace and healthcare sectors.

Graduate student Lauren Taylor, who’s part of the team at Rice University, said: “There’s a notion that carbon nanotubes are never going to be able to obtain all the properties that people have been hyping now for decades. But we’re making good gains year over year. It’s not easy, but we still do believe this technology is going to change the world.”
